UWBM Ornithology Collection

Specimen Records: 100,958
Media Records: 0
iDigBio Last Ingested Date: 2017-01-08

The ornithological collections at the Burke Museum are relatively modern, with more than 85% of the collection built in the past 20 years. These bird specimens are used for teaching, research, and art. We are particularly known for our special collections such as spread wings (the largest such collection in the world) and bird tissues (probably the world's second largest collection).
